12:22 pm
with a little bit of moisture, that moisture flows up and the continental divide condenses out and hangs in gear here. that may limit some of the warming for some of the metro area. a high pressure ridge swooping down into colorado with a low pressure trough in the coast here. that will be the feature for the weekend. up here in the northern rockies that will probably slide through sunday, bring our temperatures down just a little bit. and behind that we got get a shot of moisture for tuesday. no moisture today but mild temperatures. 70s to near 80 across the east. 60s in the mountains primarily, and 70s and 60s on the west side of the state. 75 today with the clouds kind of hanging out on the west side of town. tomorrow, though, it will be
